The case follows Jim and Debbie AungDin Taylor, an American couple with experience in international development, when they founded and built Proximity Designs, a social enterprise in Myanmar. Initially, the Taylors focus on redesigning the pedal pump for Myanmar farmers, using design thinking and processes to create a pump that is affordable for their extremely impoverished target customers. However, the Taylors soon realize that they also need to build a distribution network to sell their products. Along the way, a natural disaster (Cyclone Nargis) and political reforms in the country create new challenges and new opportunities for the area.
